? On Barm in Reinhart's Greek Celebration Breads
I know several folks here have baked this recently, so hopefully I can get some clarification. Is the "barm" in this recipe in there strictly for flavor? I see further down the list that there's a good amount of instant yeast as well. The instructions say to remove the barm from the refrigerator 1 hour before using, but it doesn't say if it should be recently fed or not, and if so, how recently. I never stick my starter back in the fridge if I'm going to use it within a day or so, so I'm left puzzled! The only conclusion I can come to with this is that it's there strictly for flavor. The last time I fed my starter, a few days ago now, I stuck it immediately in the fridge as I wasn't expecting to use it for some time.
